Hello Project Life!! I wanted to share something fun I did on Instagram two weeks ago. I'm always taking a shoe/foot picture you know, usually out in the grass or in the snow or leaves or at the track. Well, this got me thinking how cool it would be to have others join me in doing a "shoe shot" each day for the week. So I posted my first one and announced my idea for anyone who wanted to join and tag my name in it to see when they posted it. Right away others joined in and some did a few that week. By the end of the week, I had tons of shoe shots and started working on my photos, of course that made me think how neat it would be to include the ones from others too. I ordered them and added an extra insert for this week to include them all. I kept the ones from myself on the right and left pages for the week and the insert is just for my IG friends. I love how it came out. Close up time..
I didn't do any of the journaling yet for this but couldn't wait to share it here. In the top left one, I purposely took this shoe shot with the negative space in it for writing on and adding the dates. The next one is from my date with mom, the middle row starts with Summer and I at the track, YAY. The next one is my shoe shot/boot shot, the grass is still wet in the mornings so sadly my boots are still being used. The last one is with my grandma, YAY!! The bottom row is from my bible study group on Monday nights, bless their hearts for not thinking I was totally crazy when asking for this one. I LOOOOVE this one so much, see that sun and shadows on it, yep that is my very favorite!!
I LOVE THIS SIDE!! All the black and pinks make me happy. The top one is from Jo a dear friend in Australia out with friends, the top right is from my cousin Jennifer who lives in Florida and we found each other on IG, YAY !! The middle row first one is cool because it has shoes and the weather where she lives, the middle one is a dear friend walking her dog, the last one is a mom and her son, love this one. So blessed to have such sweet blog friends and IG friends. The bottom row is from Angie Bloom and her daughter, the next one is so COOL, a perfect shot of her sprinkled ice cream cone and sandels, the last one is from my awesome California friend Andrea. This is the front side of the insert, at first I squeezed in the photos but then decided to space them and add the journal cards.
Here is the back of the insert and the right side of the week
close up of the back of insert. Top two our from ATC, PL, bible study, from USA and Australia again. I seriously loved seeing these shoe shots pop up on my IG each day. I only used one from everyone for my pages but like I said some did several. I am liking the pink/black combo again.
Here is the right side and my first plan was to fill it in with the shoe shots I did with Rich. Then I realized there were still some of just me. So I put them together and added this perfect card.
And that is my week of shoe shots, I can't wait to do more like this, with different themes. Already starting a list and will be asking my IG friends and blog friends to join in with me.
Here are some flower doodles I've been making over this last week. I started with these half sheets of paper from my mom. My goal was to fill the page and not over think them. I use to try and get every petal the same size and every flower the same amount of petals, this time I just drew and didn't think. I love how they came out and just made some duplicates of these on ATCs and sent them out.
Here are more of them, my flower class with Alisa Burke has inspired my flowers along with my own joy of drawing them. Same goals here, just to draw and not overthink them.
I have also started my ICAD, all of you know what these are. The awesome Tammy at Yellow Daisy hosts this even each June and July. Create anything you want on one index a day is all you have to do. This year I'm keeping it very simple, just adding paint to any way that strikes me that day. I might add some pen/marker to them if I want or just paint only. I'm writing about our days on the backs of them, thought it would be a fun way to capture our summer. Day four and I'm up to date, YAY!!
So as you can see I've been busy with some creative fun and on Monday starts the Summer of Colors, YAY!! Our sweet host Kristin will be inspiring us with 3 colors each week for 6 weeks. I have her button on the right side of my blog, feel free to check it out. To make it easier for me, I will use the colors she picks on some of my ICAD and into my PL for those weeks. It's going to be a fun, colorful creative (simple) projects for me this summer. I'm happy to see most of you doing these too!!
Hope you all have a great week and I will be back this weekend or on Tuesday for T time.
Thanks for visiting, makes my day to see your comments here.
Hello Nancy, thought you would like a fun post so I made sure to squeeze it in. Hugs and prayers for you dear friend, and see you on Sunday I hope!!
